Project Group: Firmware Security Bootcamp



  • Term: Bachelor Computer Science, IPEC
  • Requirements:
  • Faculty: BA-INF 051
  • Effort: 2S+3P / 9CP
  • Max. Participants: 10

The topics offered will mostly be supervised by staff members of Fraunhofer FKIE (Zanderstraße). The lab phase and the seminar talks will take place at Zanderstraße.


Bootcamp consists of two phases:

In the lab phase students will learn to gain information from real hardware to manipulate said hardware or make it safer. Therefore the lab offers workplaces safe for use with open devices, such that it is possible to interact with hardware interfaces directly. No special knowledge is needed for that.

The seminar phase students will hold 3 short talks (lightning talks) concerning topics gathered from the lab phase. Meanwhile each student will prepare one larger practical topic, which is central to the practical part of examination. The lightning talks will likely take place on the three Fridays following the lab phase (exact dates t.b.a..). The graded final presentations of the labs will collectively take place on a separate date in April or Mai 2020.
